“Gangnam Monelli storms to victory in stormy conditions”

Not many greyhounds are capable of overtaking West On Grit over 405m at Mandurah but that’s exactly what Gangnam Monelli (pictured) did in heat one of The Great Western tonight.

Gangnam Monelli is raced by Katie Robson and has now won 13 of 41 career starts. The other two heat winners were West On Cobra (22.43) and Bromine (22.54).
